In the Brooder
- Jun 15, 2010
After several years of study and contemplation, this is my first year of chicken. I order 25 standard day old pullets (some of these, some of those--six different breeds) from Meyers. I am mostly very pleased, they are healthy and seem to be of decent quality--they even tossed in a few extras. They do warn that about 10% will be Roos, which is exactly what happened. But two of the three roos are very effeminante, smaller even than the hens, havent crowed yet and are very whimmpy. I think they are desitined for new homes. My question is why-how did this happen, is it a result of thier sexing the chicks? (they are now 14 weeks old) Also when can I look for my first eggs?
